For many, Thanksgiving isn’t satisfying unless celebrated with overeating and drinking, then suffering. What if there was a remedy you could take to provide relief? Not just the old “pop-pop-fizz”, but something providing complete, safe and natural relief? There is.
Nux vomica. This strange sounding product is a homeopathic remedy. It is a form of energy medicine, not a drug. It is for you if you overeat, drink to excess, drink too much coffee, or even pop too many medications. It even helps with the effects of too much work or play.
Other confirming signs you need this include irritability and a type A personality. Is your life fast-paced? Have you been working long frenetic days getting ready for your Thanksgiving break, yet plans are to over-indulge?
Nux is the classic remedy for all that. Nux is a remedy for heartburn, bloating, gas, nausea or indigestion following a feast. It is just the thing to have on hand if you find yourself unbuttoning your pants after eating. Nux is called for if you tend to be constipated or have diarrhea.
Conveniently, Nux is the magic hangover remedy. It provides relief from an alcohol-induced headache with queasy stomach.
And here’s one more benefit. Do you wake between 2 and 4am with worries and perhaps a rumbling belly? A few days of nux therapy can have you sleeping like a baby.
Nux vomica can also help your child recover from a sugar-laced sleepover or birthday party. “My tummy hurts Mommy,” this too calls for Nux vomica.
Let’ face it, Nux vomica is the perfect holiday remedy for many Americans. Try the 30c potency. After the feast, take 4 pellets under your tongue — away from coffee, after-dinner mints and preferably away from food. Repeat as needed. Stop when you feel better or after 4-5 days.
Of course, we would all be better off if we focused more on family, friends and our founding fathers (and mothers) and took smaller portions. If you aren’t there yet, pick up some Nux vomica before Thursday.
